Project. For the rejuvenation of the head offices of DEGI (Deutsche Gesellschaft für Immobilienfonds) in Frankfurt, architects Just.Burgeff thoroughly modernized the working area and introduced a contemporary office concept. Due to a modification of the fire prevention plan, the original escape levels could be dispensed with, and an open-plan layout implemented.
Concept/Design. A fundamental aspect of the plan by Just.Burgreff Architects lay in the intelligent use of the open-plan floor area. The central section, designed to be an area where colleagues could meet and exchange informally, is zoned-off with light fields. The light ceiling made from acoustically effective SEFAR® Architecture Fabric meets the demanding requirements of this communication area. Adjustable lighting ensures a constant level of brightness and a pleasant environment.
Construction. The light ceiling, a light frame integrated in a suspended gypsum ceiling, provides shadow-free and uniform light thanks to its optimized frame construction. The light source behind the fabric is not noticeable. The delicate light frame edges rhythmically divide, but due to their slenderness do not optically separate.
